Down The Ages
Down eons and ages
Have proclaimed seers and sages
That truth and righteousness
Pays rich dividend and wages.
Of course this is a heady message
An old sparkling vintage,
A wisdom that we all subscribe to
Understand, accept and appreciate.
Yet why do human mind often stray
And choose wrong means and ways
To advance his self-centered ends
In a world of fleeting moments.
So is there not something really puzzling
In our knowledge and understanding,
Maybe it is a leaky hole in our psyche and soul
Which we with goodness try to plug and control.
